A fellow brought me a garden tractor, said the tranny sounded like it was being squeezed when he ran it around! Sort of a soft groan, hi-pitched, sounded like the brass gears sound at times. I can't really describe that noise, but maybe some one might know what i mean. I declined the job. Anybody ever hear that kind of noise, or know what i am describing? The tractor is orange, rear Onan engine twin, And i just can't remember the name of it. I think the wrong gear lube may have been put in the tranny. Like the old Troy-bilt tillers. They had brass gears, and took special tranny oil.

If it is a gravely, we need more info. There were 2 different transmissions, big and little. Most of the 2 bangers were the big tranny. On either side, are clutch discs, that would be my first check, see what the lining looks like, and if they are loose. I can't remember whether it was bushings, or bearings. Also, there was a simple clip, that when worn, would make her squeal.

Gravely garden tractors were orange with white hoods and they used Onan twins mounted behind the driver, low down.

Yep, it was a Gravely. Thanks for jogging my memory. And, it had the Onan engine. You folks described it exactly. The job was way over my head, since i don't like to get involved with something that i know little, or less, about. They took it to a place i told them about, that handles the larger tractors. Must be ok--i haven't heard any complaints. RJ
